From Big Kid:
Halfway through the 19th century, the first permanent settlements appeared in Montana. After this, many fortune seekers traveled to this region with their caravans in search of work in order to build a better future for themselves. And there is an abundance of work. In the mountains, precious metals are to be found, and in the fields a lot of manpower is required. Meanwhile, the number of settlements is growing, and the demand for goods is rising. Recruit the right workers, deliver goods on time, and choose your settlements tactically. The player to build all of their settlements first is the winner!
Montana: Heritage Edition features over 200 custom wooden components, screen-printed meeples, a modular board for ever-changing experiences, and thicker cardboard.
